Manatee's Munch!

Manatees are underwater hogs......eating a large variety of vegetation and in huge amounts.  
This pair of colorful manatees (cow and calf) are busy munching on mangrove leaves, bulbs, and fanworts.

Manatee's Munch! is a 22x28 acrylic painting.


  1. Wow, it's gorgeous! The plant life and the light at the top of the water are fantastically done. And these beasts, oh my goodness! Beautiful, adorable, a little bit hilarious just because they are such odd creatures. I love it!

    1. Thanks!! I think your manatee w headdress was an inspiration!

  2. So fabulous Clara. What a bright delight.The pose and facial expression on manatee on the right is hilarious! Truly fun to see and beautifully done!

  3. Wow!!! This one is my new favorite! I love the way you did the surface of the water and the movement you have captured in the composition. And the manatees are so cute munching away and looking at us!
